In this clip, James drives the cable car, chats with customers, says goodbye to his friend then gets off and sits on a bench waiting for another cable car and jumps on it. At the end he eats a sandwich.
This is part of a 24-hour recording of a day in the life of James Bullock, a cable-car driver from San Francisco, CA. He was 56 years old at the time of the shoot.
James Bullock was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Virginia. Both his parents were factory workers. James moved to San Diego in 1968 to serve as a medic in the Marine Corps. He then shifted to San Francisco in 1971, where he married his wife Nina, a construction forewoman. James has worked in public transportation for more than 30 years, and for more than 25 years as a cable car gripman. Videotaped in 2004, he was the first Global Lives subject.
This video was produced by Daniel Jones, David Evan Harris, and Nina Saltman. This video is part of the Global Lives Project, a video library of life experience. For more information see
